 Post subject: Dinwiddie County Pullman Car, Midlothian, Virginia
PostPosted: Thu Apr 20, 2000 4:27 pm 

I'm compiling a list of the railroad cars and locomotives which are listed on the National Register of Historic Places (using info directly from the NRIS database), but I have a few unanswered questions. Perhaps someone can help with the following listing:<p>"Dinwiddie County Pullman Car" Listed in 1991, located at Hallsboro Yard, Midlothian, Virginia.<p>Please holler if you have any particulars on this one, thanks!<br>

Converted to closed-end car with rear windows and renamed Dinwiddie in 1934. Present name given in 1937 for service on N&W. Purchased from the Pullman Company in 1966 and used for excursion service until 1982 (last service on the Dixie Limited). Appeared<br>in two movies, "Eleanor and Franklin" (as FDR funeral car) and "Tad" (background piece), and listed on National Register of Historic Places<br>in October, 1991. Currently in good condition, but not available for service.<p><br>
